Wedding Photography

Wedding Photography

My wedding photography is documentary style and capturing natural unposed moments on a wedding day that happen in the blink of an eye. not with photos that your uncle could've taken. but creatively, unimposing and using available light.

I travel pretty light with two professional cameras. no huge flashes or stands. My job is to fit in, work swiftly and capture your day with my photography, making sure you hardly notice me.

I do all the preparation and planning, you and your guests just enjoy yourselves and I'll capture it all naturally.


Family Photography

Family Photography

My style of my family photography in Cornwall is the same style as my wedding photography in that it's very relaxed and natural with no posing in front of the camera.

I photograph you completely naturally and capture your families characteristics in an artistic way using available light that you can treasure forever.

Mark was an absolutely outstanding photographer for our wedding. He was so calm and just let us get on with our day. We didn’t want a whole lot of posed group shots, but the ones we did get Mark was really helpful and just let us get on with all the shots we wanted. I can not recommend Mark to photograph your wedding more, superb work and such a great guy. We can’t wait to see the photos. Thank you Mark

A top talent, and a top bloke. You won’t find better than Mark. He made the whole process a breeze, and the results were more than we could ever have hoped for. We absolutely adore our wedding photos, they tell the story of our day so beautifully and will be the perfect lasting memory of our special day. Thank you for everything Mark, you are one talented guy.

He was discreet and captured all of our most precious moments throughout the day and in to the evening.. We didn't even know he was there! Mark was professional and in the end he felt like more of a friend than just a 'wedding photographer'. We are absolutely chuffed with the 700 photos we have received of our special day! Would highly recommend Mark if you are looking for candid, relaxed and an extremely natural style of photographs!

Customer Testimonials

Just had our photos back - absolutely blown away at how incredible they are. Stunning!! Every single detail has been captured beautifully. So so happy and can not wait to share them with family and friends. Tells the story from start to finish, even at the end where it starts to get a bit...ok very drunken (Matt playing air guitar with my leg!), wouldn't have it any other way :)


Amazing photos, we both had tears in our eyes when we saw them, so natural. We had a perfect day and you put everyone at ease and made the whole experience fun and memorable. We can't thank you enough for your time and creativity.


Mark took the time to get to know us and exactly what we wanted and he captured our day perfectly; moments we may have missed and helped us treasure memories. We couldn't wait to see our photographs, which are truly beautiful!


Mark took amazing family photos for us when we were on holiday in Cornwall. This was for a very special family occasion and we could not be happier with the images he shot. He even processed the photographs really quickly for us so that my mum could see them to cheer her up (she was in hospital at the time following an accident). I wish we lived closer as I would love another family shoot from Mark in the future. Highly recommended.


Mark was a fantastic photographer for our wedding day. We wanted natural photos of the day and not to feel like we were ‘on show’ all day. Mark made this so easy for us and everyone has said how wonderful our photographs are and how lovely it is to see such perfectly timed and natural shots. I would highly recommend him, and if we ever needed a photographer in the future for other events I will definitely ask for Mark!


Mark did everything in his power to understand and appreciate us as people before the wedding, offering us a beautiful pre-wedding shoot and keeping in contact whenever we had questions. When I first looked at his gallery online I knew he had to be our photographer. The humour and honesty to his pictures were like nothing we had ever seen before, upon scrolling through I actually cried! And even with this in mind, our wedding photographs turned out to exceed my expectations. They are funny and sweet and joyous and perfect. The quality is incredible and you couldn’t meet a nicer man. The most special images are the ones captured of the band the night of the wedding. Mark even told us that he was leaving, said goodbye and everything! But he was there still, we had no idea. Mark blends into the background but his photographs do anything but! Thank you Mark, love Sophie and George Bradley


Mark and his colleague Laiani took an incredible set of photos at our wedding in Cornwall in September. From intimate and candid moments to natural group shots, beautiful landscape details to worrying dancefloor antics, he really captured the story of the occasion distinctively and dramatically.

He was an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout, really putting us at ease, and the results were even better than we expected from looking at his website. The final galleries were delivered within a few weeks, while he also sent us some teasers while we were still on our honeymoon - giving us a lovely and timely reminder of our day. Our only regret was that he wasn't around for some of the other events we had planned with our guests over the weekend.

Very highly recommended indeed.
